Happy Birthday, Cara!

It’s the birthday of our own Cara. Some say her Beatles fannishness has no rival. Some say her feminist powers reach beyond human comprehension. Some say her only weakness is sweet chilli sauce of a kind only to be found in Australia. (I eat it for you, Cara, I eat it for you.) We just write a blog with her.

A black and white picture of the Beatles, Cara's favourite band, from the shoulders up, lined up in a row. The words "Happy Birthday, Cara!" are superimposed on the bottom left corner, one word per line.
Hope it’s a good year for you, Cara. Feel free to leave birthday wishes in comments, folks!

    Description: a slideshow of Beatles pictures: standing in the ocean, two of them saluting while one of them holds a star, bowing on stage, a black and white shoulders-up shot and cutting a cake. The audio track is of the Beatles playing “Happy Birthday”.

    Happy birthday, Cara! (psst! how do you use your chili sauce? I like mine on top of pork chops, with a slice of lemon on top. Cook the chops, and when they’re just about done, layer the chili sauce and lemon on top. Let simmer, and when the lemon looks soft, they’re done. Mmm. Good with fried potatoes.)

    Enjoy your cake (and/or a nice beverage)!!
